The Wharfedale Foundation is a grant-making trust established in 2009 (Charity no. 228031). It aims to fund projects in the Yorkshire and Humber region that address the divisions in our society by building communities, encouraging social cohesion, developing greater understanding of social justice and diversity, and promoting responsible use of the environment.
They want to expand their board of trustees and are looking for committed people keen to share their vision and willing to play an active role in developing the work of the Trust. The Foundation is looking for people with a range of skills and experience (whether gained in the third sector or a business/commercial role), and from backgrounds that represent the diversity of culture and geography within the region.
Applications from people with one or more of the following would be particularly welcome:
- A working knowledge of the voluntary and community sector
- Experience of assessing funding applications
- Experience of fundraising
Hours: Trustees attend four or five meetings a year, including an AGM / Open Meeting. Most meetings take place starting late afternoon / early evening at a central regional location such as Leeds.
